Monsoon Vortex

A name has been drawn for Monsoon Mind ☁️☁️☁️ My monsoon mind is flowing is floating and flying with inspiration from the ether. (If you entered the draw, be sure to check your junk box just in case)

Also, not to worry if your name wasn’t drawn, I’ll be drawing a few names for fall custom spots soon.

Scarf in the Woods

I spent a little time romping around in the woods yesterday, and finally got this scarf photographed. It is now available in my Etsy shop –

Meanwhile…as the random draw for a chance to purchase is happening (see Friday’s post), I got some new raw silk dyed and ready to weave into another piece that will be up for sale. 🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓

Monsoon Mind Handwoven Wearable Art

A random draw for the chance to purchase Monsoon Mind Handwoven Art Yardage begins now and will close on Thursday August 15th.
This piece was woven by me here at my home-studio in New Mexico on a warp of Organic Cotton-Linen and a weft of naturally dyed raw silk. The plant dyes used in this piece were Sandalwood, Black Walnuts, Pecan Shucks, Sage, Blanketflower, Marigold, Fustic, Pomegranate Skins and Holly Grape Root.
For all the details or to enter the draw –

To Be Alive

‘To Be Alive’

by Gregory Orr

To be alive: not just the carcass
But the spark.
That’s crudely put, but…
If we’re not supposed to dance,
Why all this music?
Because I scarcely have words for the creations that I bring to life, I choose to illuminate them through the more eloquent words of others. For this (and myriad other things) I am very grateful.

Tomorrow I will be announcing about the sale of this naturally dyed piece. Skirt by @BohemianFolkClothing

This is my sweet mom enjoying Speaking to the Heart. A name has been drawn for Speaking to the Heart Handwoven Art Yardage. (Please check your junk box incase it ended up there) Also, I will heave very spotty internet for the next few days so my response time may be slower than usual. Thank you so very much to all those who entered
